The Washington State Supreme Court today issued its McCleary order regarding the state's progress in amply funding public education for every Washington student. 

Below is WEA President Kim Mead's statement in response. 

“We’re glad the court retained jurisdiction. This ruling proves what we said during the session — the budget represents progress but doesn’t meet the McCleary mandate to amply fund K-12 public schools by Sept. 1 of next year. The Constitution makes a promise to Washington children — all of them have the right to an amply funded quality public education. We look forward to working with legislators in January to finally meet that promise."
